    Voice Dialogue for making the world a better place

Enrich your life with the information, techniques and processes from the unique personal growth work known as Voice Dialogue.

This website and blog gives you explanatory information and practical help with relationships, parenting, career success, decision-making, self-esteem, creativity, conflict resolution, integrating spirituality with your instinctual nature, balancing doing and beinghonouring masculinity and femininity, and more.

Voice Dialogue involves gaining awareness of the many parts – or selves – that affect your life experience. These selves are the most discrete units of the psyche and together they make up who you are. (This was illustrated in an entertaining way in the movie Inside Out).

So you can discover if you are identified more strongly with your Rational Self or your Emotional Self, your Pleaser or your Pusher, your Spiritual Seeker or your Scientist, your Perfectionist or Lazy Self, your Romantic or your Responsible Self.

You can also discover which parts of your psyche you have disowned or have no awareness of, and learn how to integrate them so that you become more whole.

What You’ll Gain From This Site

Voice Dialogue and You! brings together my previous blogs (Daily Voice Dialogue and Baby Dialogue) and material from my ‘old’ newsletter that included articles, tips and techniques, and instructional guides. I’m gradually adding the material from those blogs and newsletter, as well as new articles, so this site will eventually bring together in one place all those resources.

So as you explore this site you’ll find educational material on the theory underpinning Voice Dialogue which is known as The Psychology of Selves, you’ll learn practical techniques and exercises you can use at home, and you’ll get tips on leading a fuller and richer life with this work.

Some of the benefits you’ll experience include being able to communicate better in your relationships, having access to more of your talents, abilities and passions, and being able to make choices with greater consciousness.

Although Voice Dialogue is not a therapy in itself, its effects can be therapeutic, and it is used as a tool by therapists who have trained in it. People find it helps with all kinds of problems, and it is compatible with many psychotherapeutic and personal growth and development systems.

I invite you to read the articles and explanatory pages here, and to try the tips and techniques offered. And if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via Facebook or Twitter.

Riding Life’s Tidal Waves

“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.”Jon Kabat-Zinn

When I was working on my last book, I’d arrive home after dropping the kids at school and head straight to the study, ignoring the mess the children love living in.

During those uninterrupted hours, nothing could have lured me from my computer. I knew my time was limited (it’s amazing how short the school day seems when it’s not you at school!), so that helped me to be disciplined.

But there was also another factor at work: it felt as if I needed to write that book. I really had to do it. I didn’t have any choice.

Being caught up so completely with something in your life and learning to ride that wave is what this post is about.
